  1. Noo…It's completely wrong…If u kissed or loved ur dog..Then the love will increased day to day..Not the infection…?????

  2. I have 3 dogs and we have been kissing each other since I was baby and before that humans have been with dogs/wolfs for thousands of years and were fine, plus there is no point on having a dog if you can't love them also the dog will start to resent you if the can't kiss you because it is a sign of trust and you loving the dog

  3. Omg‼I can't believe I just wasted 3 minutes on this. Can I get those minutes back. Don't kiss your pet. ??‍♂️

  4. Chances of contracting these diseases must be pretty slim, considering how many people own pets and have never had issues.

  5. I don't let my fur baby lick my cuts .and go near my mouth the cheek is okay but not near the mouth no way

  6. ALL THE COMMENTS MADE ME FEEL COMFORTABLE CUZ MY DOG KISSED ME EVERYTIME AND I'M SCARED BECAUSE YOU KNOW BUT HE IS A HIGHBREED DOG

  7. I was lying on my floor and my dog ran up and liked me and I was trying to hide my face then he licked inside my mouth ???

  8. This video is a little misleading. There is a difference between you kissing your dog and letting your dog kiss you and/or lick your face and your mouth. I'm wondering why this distinction is not made here. Though good hygiene habits are always important, this video almost comes off as anti-pet. Kissing my dogs on the muzzle and on the head has actually been a valuable tool for bonding and affirmation of good behavior on their part. Keep good hygiene habits in mind, maybe refrain from letting them lick your face or mouth, but always kiss your dog!
